A CPU and motherboard manufacturer focussed mainly on tech rather than high clock speeds. While their processors are stronger than AMD processors, they are also quite a bit more pricey. If money's not a problem, then Intel is the way to go. I also recommend getting an aftermarket cooler as their stock fans aren't very good.
Man 1: I just got an Intel i7 920!!! I'm gonna tear through all my games and work!

Man 2: You realized you just spent about $300 on a quad-core when you could've gotten an AMD Quad-core CPU for like $100-$180?

Man 1: .....

Why buy an Intel based computer when I can buy an AMD at half the price.

The CIA thought they had good intel on the "terrorists" until they realized they were spying on other members of the CIA in disguise. After realizing this, they blew up a Mosque, arrested a few Iraqi bystanders, called them terrorists, and demanded more funding from the US budget.

Who gives about micro-electronics when the first tv ad this company made had a bus load of guys in pastel colored NBAC suits who'd leap out and start doing bad dance moves any where, any time, with no warning?

That's some shit to live up to, AMD.

Really overpriced and overhyped processor.

You can say a 2.2 Ghz AMD Athlon XP processor is the equivalent to a 3.2 GHz Intel pentium 4 fanboy and he'd say "HAHAHA no you noob, 3.2 is a greater number than 2.2"

Intel processors run at 6 calculations per cycle
Amd athlon XPs run at 10 calculations per cycle
Amd ahtlon 64s run at 12 calculations per cycle

Intel processors have a horrible front side bus with degrades the quality of the processor.
Intel processors are stupid. Anyone who says otherwise obviously doesn't know anything and has seen a bunch of Intel/Dell commercials.

Computer hardware company who are constantly advertising whatever expensive, overstated pentium crap they're pushing at that time. Strangely, my old intel pc never crashed until after I'd had it for three years.
